Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, doesn't this sound like a job interview. I've never been a beta-reader before so I don't really have a style, but I can be pretty honest with people (not Simon-like though). Just get in contact with me and I'd be happy to read over your story and make suggestions and corrections. I'm absolutely free for the next four months (besides work and drinking), but other than that it'll be pretty easy to get in contact, my email is on my profile as well.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty good with putting things through a spell checker, if your writing program happens to be the one in a billion that doesn't have it. I can catch grammar errors quite well (that doesn't necessarily mean my own). I'm quite familiar with the particular areas I'm willing to read for, so I'll be able to help if you have questions about what a certain character may or may not do. Also, I'm pretty good with dialogue and can be creative when I want be.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Run-ons, comma-splices, etc. I can't tell the difference between any of them. It's all a sentence to me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta a story in which the author has a pretty good sense of what he or she is going to do. I can make suggestions, but as I said try to have a basic outline of your story. Also, if you can't speak english well or you're 12 years old and not a very good writer, I'd rather not beta for you. A minimum comprehension of grammar, spelling, and punctuation is a must.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I probably won't read anything that I'm not familiar with the source material. I probably won't make exceptions either.
